What are the best accessories for road trips?
I want to go on a road trip, but I'm not sure what to bring with me. What are some of the best car accessories for road trips that will enhance my trip?
“A memorable road trip isn’t just about the destination; it’s about how you get there. So to that degree, you’re correct. You need some awesome accessories to make your journey even more enjoyable.
You have standard no-brainers, such as your phone for music, a packed cooler with beverages, and some good snacks, but some other things you may overlook include:
- A small but powerful Bluetooth speaker
- Reusable water bottle and coffee cup (you’ll save a ton of money)
- Jump-starter that doesn’t require another vehicle to work
- Phone mount for hands-free directions and driving
- Multipoint charger for the cigarette lighter
- Seat cushions
And if you like camping, a car-top tent is an amazing way to save money while enjoying the great outdoors.
While it isn’t an accessory, be sure you have the proper car insurance for your trip. If there’s an accident along the way, you want to be sure you’re properly protected. Adding roadside assistance or towing and labor coverage to your policy can also save you if you break down or are stranded somewhere.
